OKay, okay, personal edit- revision time here. Change "That's what the guy behind the counter is for.", to "That's what the guy behind the counter is supposed to be for".

Thanks Nick, do you know the sizes that I should ask for? Honestly I just want to replace all the vacuum lines in the car, but don’t know where to start haha!
If you carefully clean the old vacuum lines they have printed on the rubber in ink (usually white, sometimes pink/green/etc) a size.

Recommendation 1 - make sure the counter idiot understands if you're asking for ID or OD sizing

Recommendation 2 - spring for fuel injection barrier hose. Yes, pricier. But has a colored membrane layer molded in so ethanol and such can't hurt amd degrade the rubber.

Recommendation 3. make sure the hose he/she is suggesting or recommending is rated for fuel or vacuum or both. The hose typically used for windshield washer fluid is not rated for either. As noted, your old lines may still bear the markings that describe their diameter and function or application.

Don't expect your existing lines to have OEM replacement part numbers. Even the factory goes bulk, it just uses a machine to cut the tube to pre-determined lengths and bins them for delivery to the line. Dealers about do the same, only they tend to charge for both the material and the labor to cut it. Oink, oink.
